Three people were shot dead Sunday night in the Woodlands condominium complex in Hamilton Township, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
At approximately 7:30 p.m, police responded to 2715 Evergreen Court in the Mays Landing section for a 911 report of shots fired and found three people dead from apparent gunshot wounds, Atlantic County Prosecutor Murray Talasnik said.
Talasnik would release no further details.
Hamilton Township Police and the major-crimes unit of the prosecutor's office are conducting the investigation. The Atlantic County Office of Emergency Managment was helping investigators process evidence from the crime scene.
Brenda Morrison, the property manager for the Woodlands Community Association, said police called her to the condominium complex Sunday night. Morrison said it appeared that a woman, the woman's 15-year-old and the woman's sister had been killed. Morrison said a police detective told her it was a triple homicide.
Morrison said a 2-year-old boy also lived at the condominium and did not appear to be injured.
Morrison said the two-bedroom condominium along a quiet wooded street was owned by Tracy Coleman, 45.
"Neighbors said she was a lovely woman who went to work every day . . . she was a very pretty girl," Morrison said. She said Coleman had owned the dwelling for about two years.
There are 766 units at the complex, which opened in the 1970s.
